Friday talks include:

Disruption: Breaking and Re-making the Mould
What opportunities are there for women in a world that’s constantly being disrupted by technology and new ideas? Come and hear from the experts about the part that women are playing, how women can capitalise on this phenomenon, and how ‘stale, male and pale’ no longer cuts it.

Hands on the Levers of Power
From education to war and from medical research to politics, what would it be like if women had the power? What choices would they make and would other women automatically be supported? Come and have your say.

Workshops
Enjoy a range of workshops, including How to Get a Pay Rise, How to Get Elected, and What You Can Do About the Gender Pay Gap.
